LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Gov. Matt Mead says the University of Wyoming should be a guiding force in helping the state create a better overall education system.

Mead addressed the UW board of trustees on Thursday in Laramie.

He says the goal of having well educated citizens requires the collective work of the K-12 system, community colleges and UW.

The governor says the UW has the advantage of being the only public, four-year university in the state in terms of financial support. But he says its location in one corner of the state is a disadvantage because other areas of the state are far from UW.

Mead says the solution is for the university to improve its outreach to other areas of the state.
